​The Reason for Our Fundraising

The main purpose for our fund-raising efforts is to fund scholarships for deserving youth from the greater Hampstead Community. Children who have volunteered, or whose family members have volunteered for Civic Club programs and events are eligible. 

The  Civic Club will award 3 Essential Workers scholarships this year only. 

Essential Workers Scholarship


Veikko Huuskonen Essential Workers Scholarship

In late March, Veikko Huuskonen, a long time board member of the Greater Hampstead Civic Club, was diagnosed with Covid-19. He spent almost a month at Holy Family Hospital on a ventilator. Veikko is home now and on his way to a full recovery. In recognition of Veikko's battle with Covid-19 we would like to recognize a Hampstead high school senior entering their 1st year of college, that is considered an Essential Front Line Worker during this pandemic, with an Essential Workers Scholarship.
